    I just started reading the Orthodox Study bible and so far I find it to be a valuable source for bible study. The notes at the bottom of each page are very helpful in providing a deeper level of understanding. The information provided about Orthodox Christianity is also very informative, even to a person who has been raised in the Orthodox Christian tradition.

    This is a well thought-out volume with excellent commentary and study notes. It is easy to read with clear, large type. The notes draw from Patristic sources which pre-suppose Faith rather than the skeptical "scholarship" that readers are usually subjected to. It also presents an excellent counter-balance to the Protestant/Evangelical viewpoint found in most other Bibles. The translation is very well done, and it is enriching to be able to use a translation based on the Septuagint. The icons are lovely. Reading this Bible is a truly prayerful experience.

    This Study Bible fills in the space between the Jewish Study Bible and protestant versions. There is a wealth of information and the alternate OT text is welcome. This is only the second source of material I have found. Thank you for providing this link to our roots.

    My first observation is that only part of the Septuagint appears to have been translated; otherwise in most of the Hebrew Scriptures the Hebrew text serves as basis of the translation unless there is a wide divergence from the Septuagint. This is okay in the sense that the meaning is not radically altered and it certainly allowed them to get the edition out faster for sale.I found the commentaries rather disappointing. For a Study Bible that touts that it is going to allow Ancient Christianity to speak, few of the footnotes really provided any significant insight into the texts, particularly from a typological or allegorical viewpoint. My impression is that the footnotes were designed with Protestant in mind.

    A lovely copy of the Scriptures from an Orthodox standpoint.The Icon pages are particularly beautiful.Well worth the money to read comments from an orthodox viewpoint.
